This morning, Donald Trump's White House filed a cease-and-desist order against Henry Holt, the publishers of Fire and Fury, an upcoming book by Michael Wolff about the interior workings of the Trump administration. The book, which was scheduled to be published on Tuesday, has already made headlines after several gossipy excerpts were leaked online.
Greg Evans at Deadline reports that Henry Holt responded to Trump's cease-and-desist in exactly the right way:
“Due to unprecedented demand,” Holt said in a statement, “we are moving the on-sale date for all formats of ‘Fire and Fury,’ by Michael Wolff, to Friday, January 5, at 9 a.m. ET, from the current on-sale date of Tuesday, January 9.”
Fantastic! One thing: If you're interested in buying Wolff's book tomorrow, please make sure that you buy it from an independent bookstore. This book very likely has very little caloric content, politically speaking — the policies of the Trump administration are what matter, and what we should be obsessing over — so you should at least support the families of local booksellers with your purchase, rather than lining the pockets of some other impossibly wealthy man.
